Lack of jurors prompts delay of Jamaican rapper's trial
A lack of jurors has postponed the murder trial of one of Jamaica's biggest dancehall stars. The trial of Vybz Kartel was scheduled to start Monday but it wasn't possible to seat enough jurors, leading the trial to be rescheduled.

 

Kartel, whose real name is Adijah Palmer, and five co-defendants were charged with the killing of a Jamaican man nicknamed Clive "Lizard" Williams. Authorities allege that Williams was beaten to death at Kartel's home, and even though a body has never been found, the police say they seized a phone containing images of the slaying. (AP)
